So this afternoon Zoe decided she’d make desert for us all. Strawberries, Bananas, Blueberries, Yoghurt and hundreds and thousands - all her favourites. Surprisingly, didn’t taste too bad!

Spoon making (yeah, craft isn’t really my thing, but at least I’m trying 😂)

I am absolutely filthy and disgusted at the letter below that was posted on a shop window in Clayton not that long ago. This country has been built on the back of migrants from all around the world who came here seeking a better life for them and their families. There is absolutely no place in this country, or indeed in the City of Monash, for these type of views.
.
The author of this cowardly anonymous, vile and pathetic attack on a fellow Australian needs to pull his/her head in. Being born in Australia does not make you any more Australian than anyone else. Nor does it give you the right to make unprovoked racist attacks on innocent people. In fact, it is people like the author of this letter, and the views within it, that do not belong in this country. Hopefully the author sees this post and has a good, hard look at him/herself.
.
In these unprecedented times, we need to come together and fight these challenges together, unified, not attack each other and cause divisions within our communities.
.
United we stand, divided we fall.
.
I stand beside with the recipient of this letter, and with all our other hard working Australians, regardless of their race, religion, creed, nationality or sexuality.
.
Disclaimer: @monashcouncil is also aware of vandalism that has occurred in Clayton. Victoria Police investigations are continuing, however this letter appears to be unrelated and is an isolated incident

Twelve months ago today. I miss my Dad, and my eldest daughter, but at least they’re safe and alive. This is a really really tough day for me, and I’m sure for many of the Dad’s out there, but we’ll get through this together.
.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!

Meet John Ioannides. He turned 100 today!
.
Isolation is such a difficult period for all of us, but no more so than for our elderly residents. John came to Australia by boat in 1956. It took three months for him to get here, with his wife and daughter joining him twelve months later.
.
He arrived not speaking a word of English but built a life for himself and his family in this beautiful country. He worked for many years laying railway tracks, at the AJC Jam factory and Dunlop tyres. At age 99, he moved to Bupa aged care in Clayton. Unfortunately, he’s a Collingwood supporter, but not everyone is perfect.Congratulations to his large, and rather loud family for organising a Zoom meeting to sing happy birthday. Such a fantastic tribute to a great local resident.
.
Happy birthday John!

Australian Citizenships - Covid style.When restrictions started back in March we had to put a hold on ceremonies but since changes were made by the Department of Home Affairs to allow remote pledges, we’ve been able to resume.
.
Perhaps not the ceremony we would have liked, but nothing is quite as important to candidates. It might be a computer screen, but the pure joy and emotion exuded remains the same.
.
Congratulations to you all!

Isolation has some positives; more family time! The kids are old enough now to develop a love of board games, something my siblings and I spent many hours indulging in when we were younger. And we have quite a collection to choose from!

Last weekend I made a post about a new spoonville that a local Hughesdale resident started up. It had three spoons. Yesterday we went for a walk to add our spoons and there’s now a whole entire village there.
.
Love this sort of community initiative; its certainly kept our girls busy.
.
It’s just east of the Galbally Reserve playspace. Pop down and add yours!

The other morning I went to make a coffee and found Zoe up on her steps, peeling her own mandarin, and putting the peel in the food recycling caddy.
.
Kids amaze me 😍👏

Our recent Council meeting was a first for the City of Monash. It was before the Stage 4 lockdowns, but I made the call to switch to fully remote meetings instead of the hybrid model we’d previously used.
.
I had to be in the chamber myself for Goverance reasons, but all other Councillors and our staff joined remotely via Zoom. It was a tough meeting to chair, and it felt eerily lonely, but was a very real reminder of the seriousness of the challenge we’re all facing.

It’s critically important to stay home whenever you can (we’ve switched to grocery deliveries to avoid shopping) but it’s also critically important to get outside in the fresh air
.
Not only is physical activity good for you, it assists with avoiding mental health issues in what is, for all of us, a very stressful time
.
We spent half an hour in the sunshine at Caloola Reserve yesterday after a short bike ride - thoroughly enjoyable!
